Jesus' First Step To Compassion

Recorded on Sunday, July 22, 2012

In this sermon Francis focuses in on one small step that seems to preceed the compassionate actions of Jesus, namely that he looked and saw the state people were in.  Seeing the condition of others seems to be a step on the way to compassion and the actions which flow from that.  So why might we not see the needy people around us?  That question is engaged.

Receiving God's Gift In Christ

Recorded on Sunday, July 15, 2012

The opening verses of the Epistle to the Ephesians set out a fanfare of blessings that God has poured out for us who believe in Christ.  All God's purposes for blessing are achieved in him.  But how do we actually receive that and work it into our lives?  That How? question is taken up in this message about receiving Christ.

Jesus Claims The Centre Ground

Recorded on Sunday, July 1, 2012

 Jesus met people in their need but both exceeded their expressed desires and transformed their realtionship with himself.  This is taken as illustrative of the principle that people come to church out of need but stay to serve and opened up to bring a challenge to consumerist attitudes among Christians who want to remain recipients of grace without growing to become channels of grace.
